post #53941 of 70737

I'll give them a call Monday morning. I think it's a close-out style, so repairing the current pair is probably more effective than crafting an entirely new pair just for me. The heel is going to take a lot of abuse and I'd hate to have issues down the road from a problem that existed at the time of purchase.

I had a similar situation with a problem on a pair of a closeout style. They had me send them back and they refinished them as well as gave me a partial refund. Maybe that will work for you.

I have a normal instep, but the shoe had empty space between my foot and the tongue of the shoe. Based on what @JSO1
suggested, I am gonna try 9.5E and see if that helps. I really love the design of this shoe.

I was in an AE store today looking for the Bleecker St. and the manager expressly warned about this same issue being prevelant on this model. So it's not just you, and it's a problem they're aware of. Maybe why they "discontinued" this boot after such a short time.

Here's a picture of my new Bourbon Daltons. My first AE. Do you more experienced folk think the wrinkling on the details on only one boot is a problem? I'm worried it could develop into greater creasing and look silly next to the other perfect boot. It is already showing the beginning of a crease brand new.

Doing this from the phone isn't working so well, but here is the comparative picture of the other side of both boots.

Are they firsts or seconds?  I have two pairs of Dalton seconds and the side panels have slightly worse creasing than those (even before being worn, obviously).  I don't even give it a second thought, since normal wear results in various creasing in the same general areas.  But it also helps that I paid ~$200 for each pair.  At twice that price, I might care more.

My 2nd are slightly wrinkled at the top and that is all and similar to you I paid $219.

I don't have a picture, but mine do not crease at all at the bottom of the tongue.

These are firsts. I bought them in the store, but they were on sale for$350. If they were $250 take it or leave it, I would take it for sure. The pictures of the boots that convinced me that they looked so great (primarily how they looked in jeans) didn't seem to show large creases along the sides.

I have these and love them! If you polish them with navy paste wax, they turn out sort of more formal, in a steely-blue hue that is absolutely amazing!

I've had several satisfactory purchases of AE factory seconds from shoebank.com.  Recently I scored a pair of grey Daltons for $200, which is an awesome price, but they turn out to be structurally defective - the left shoe's eyestays are uneven, making the shoelaces appear lopsided (see pics below).

Give the great price, I am leaning towards keeping them, and hoping that they won't cause foot problems or break down faster down the road.  The shoes fit well and aren't uncomfortable.  If that a recommended course of action?







Thanks!

Luke

How did you get them for that price? I mean, that's $75 off for a few creases in a spit where most blucher boots are going to crease anyway. For me, would be a no brainer to keep.

That's interesting. The store was running a sale on Bourbon shoes only. I'm usually a little more educated about my purchases but being new to AE I'm still learning. From reading this forum, it doesn't seem like anyone pays full price. There are certain brands where only a fool pays the retail price. When you look at the other non-wrinkled boot the difference is striking. I'll review the other pictures again to see if they are going to crease anyway and therefore even out.

By all means exchange them if you haven't worn them and it bothers you. But all my boots have creases there (except the shaker heights which has tweed sides), at least, after I've walked around in them.
